Continental Divide (Blu-ray)
Directed by Michael Apted
From Michael Apted, the acclaimed director of Coal Miner’s Daughter, Gorky Park, Thunderheart, Extreme Measures and The World Is Not Enough, comes this wonderful romantic comedy starring comedy legend John Belushi (National Lampoon’s Animal House, 1941, The Blues Brothers). Ernie Souchak (Belushi) is a celebrated Chicago Sun-Times columnist famous for his blistering political exposés. While his controversial reporting has earned him the respect of his editor, Howard McDermott (Allen Garfield, The Brink’s Job), and the admiration of a legion of fans, it also earns him a trip to the hospital following a run-in with some disgruntled thugs. Suggesting he leave the city for a while, McDermott sends Ernie to the Rockies to interview renowned ornithologist Nell Porter (Blair Brown, Altered States), who studies the habits of the endangered American bald eagle. It’s a case of loathe at first sight when the chain-smoking, big city Souchak meets the reclusive nature-lover Porter. But despite their differences, Souchak’s trip west soon turns into a fun-filled romantic adventure as these two trek through the mountains at the top of the world along the Continental Divide. Written by Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark), co-produced by Steven Spielberg (Poltergeist) and co-starring Tony Ganios (The Wanderers), Val Avery (The Sting II), Bill Henderson (Inside Moves) and Ron Dean (Code of Silence).
